Reviews for Crab Cakes
"This was my first time making crab cakes. They turned out pretty well. I used a 1/4 of a yellow onion instead of the green onions. I also used imitation crab and it did stick together for me. I will make this again!"
"It was my first time making crab cakes. I used fresh crab meat. They were excellent. I will make them again using this recipe"
"I used the canned crab meat and it was very watery and unstable. I had to add more bread crumbs to give it more consistency. I also added celery and red onion instead of green onion and it was very good. Still needs some tweeking but over all they were good."
"Did not hold together very well after the first side was brown. Tried adding an egg and more crumbs to remaining batch. Recipe needs work. Was not very tasty."
"this is the only recipe I use for my crab cakes, as we live near the water and always have dungeness crab when in season, I always use fresh crab, I do add about 2 teaspoons of "old bay" seasoning to the recipe. my family loves it!"
"I tried this with imitation crab meat and it didn't work out as well. The crab meat at my local store is $10 per 6 oz, so it wasn't economical to buy real crab meat. I think next time I will try to downsize the recipe to just one bag of crab meat and try it that way."
